From 158th Avenue, go west on Blueridge Drive to NW Foxborough Circle, and turn south. If you watch carefully you will come to this tiny park, which is owned by the Tualatin Hills Parks & Recreation District. It is most likely the smallest dedicated rose garden owned by a parks district in the Portland area. The park is crammed between two houses on the north side of the street.

There is a simple loop bark dust trail, with a paved walkway that runs between Foxborough Circle and Blueridge, and enters Blueridge more or less at the intersection with Altishin Place.

On the other side of Foxborough the paved pathway continues into Waterhouse Park. Photo 5 is a view of this little Rose Garden from the pathway in Waterhouse Park.

Facilities in this small park are not particularly complicated. Other than the rose bushes and well maintained grass, there isn't much here.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
